Mike Cox
October 8, 2003 - Letter to the Lansing State Journal



Who can stop AG?

Where has Attorney General Mike Cox been? He hasn't noticed that programs are being cut and state pay reduced because the state can't balance its budget? He thinks this is a good time to play Santa Claus and hand out $1,000 checks to 280 of his employees?

According to his spokesman, "The attorney general hopes it will go to either reimburse employees for out-of-pocket expenses that they have had or that they will have ..." Expenses they WILL have?

I got reimbursed for work-related expenses when I was a state employee, but only for actual, documented expenses. The payments sound illegal to me, but who can I complain to?
